Friday Randomness--Legos

In honor of the anniversary of the Lego's design being patented, I thought why not celebrate by sharing various Lego things.

We begin with a few Harry Potter sets
Hogwart's Castle
Hogwart's Express
Diagon Alley
I used to buy Harry Potter Lego sets but then my son let his friends play with them and I lost pieces and . . . I was very unhappy.  Still am.  I haven't bought myself a Lego since.  I've been Lego traumatized!

Then they came out with Lego Architecture sets.  Ooooh . . .
The Empire State Building
The Guggenheim Museum
Falling Water

Rockefeller Center
I especially want the NYC buildings, of course, but they have a White House one as well and that would be pretty nifty to use educationally, perhaps when working through a unit on the history of the United States or during the next Presidential election.

And there is a wealth of fabulous Lego things out there on the internet.  If you find something you think I should have shared, feel free to leave a link in a comment.  And if you have any Lego's lying around you should go get some and have some fun.  Even better if you can share your Lego love with the younger generation.
